This CD was released in 2002 by Drama Company, but we, as authors and holder of the rights to the recording itself, have decided to re-release it under a Creative Commons Audio License. Please check out http://www.chaospiral-studios.net for full info on this release and other albums by Chaos Condensed.
Chaos Condensed is a loose collective of writers, musicians, programmers, poets, sorcerers, clowns, designers and tricksters who happened to record a spoken word CD as one of the possible means to express some of the ideas developed by the group's investigations, debate and cross-discipline collaborations. Defining "Chaos" as the "Tabula Rasa" state where nothing is fixed and every option is possible and "The Machine" as the attitude which locks beliefs into dogmas that are not to be discussed or reinterpreted, Chaos Condensed try to express a system of thought which challenges every assumed notion of what things "are" or are "supposed" to be.
Some of the influences named by the collective are Austin Osman Spare, Phil Hine, Pete Carroll, Hakim Bey, Robert Anton Wilson, Situationism, Surrealism, Chaos Magick and Discordianism, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, Yorgos Sefferis, Edmond Jabés, Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze, Paul Auster, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Fravia+, Noam Chomsky, Jello Biafra and lots of penguins.
Unfortunately for international audiences, the ideas and poetry expressed in Chaos Condensed's recorded works cannot be easily translated into other languages than Spanish, as only using our mother tongue can we achieve the subtlety and precission we need. It's not that we don't want to reach broader audiences, it's just that we don't feel we can develop our full potential in languages of which we don't have a perfect grasp.
